Information on voting at home

If your ability to move is so limited that you cannot come to a polling place without undue difficulty, you can vote at home. A caregiver living in the same household can vote at the same time. Voting at home can only take place in your own municipality of residence.

If you are entitled to at-home voting, enroll in voting at home, at the latest, on January 11, 2022, by 16:00. You can enroll in voting at home by calling the election commission, tel. 043 825 0017, or by mailing the enrollment form to: Vantaan kaupunki, vaalitoimisto, PL 1100, 01030 Vantaan kaupunki.

The notification shall state the voter’s full address, phone number and identity number, as well as the same information about a caregiver voting at home. A person chosen by the voter can make the enrollment on the voter’s behalf.

Download the enrollment form

You can also pick up the enrollment form at Vantaa Infos in Tikkurila, Korso and Myyrmäki.

The election commission will contact those voting at home after termination of the enrollment period and inform them of the time of the at-home voting with one-hour accuracy. The general at-home voting period is on weekdays from January 12 to January 18, 2022.

Voting safety

Compliant with the Ministry of Justice's instructions, Vantaa prepares for the coronavirus situation by acquiring protective gear and training the at-home voting officials in health security. We recommend that also voters wear a face mask during voting, as well as use their own pen.

If you are in doctor-ordered quarantine or isolation, you can—provided that certain conditions are met—enroll in at-home voting, at the latest, on January 11, 2022, by 16:00. Or, you can wait for your quarantine or isolation period to end before voting.

Voting at institutions

Several hospitals, elderly-care institutions, and penal institutions located in the municipality arrange voting opportunities. People entitled to vote in the above-mentioned institutions are only the registered residents, not, for example, employees or visitors.

Voting at home and at an institution takes place at the same time as general early voting.
